Lead poisoning in the wild

Once upon a time I found a dead swan in the woods and that very day a journey started learning about lead poisoning and wildlife. Lead ‘fishing sinkers’ and ‘lead shot’ poison many innocent animals in our wild every year.  20 swans in the last 2 years have died in the Winter from lead poisoning at a local creek near my home.  Here are two photos I took this Winter of what lead poisoning looks like.  What it looks like is sadness.  The End.  Literally.
